TOPIC for BLOG-a-TON 49: down memory lane

Our dream is to have a hundred participants come in one day and take part in an edition of Blog-a-ton. Let's hope that at least we can achieve half of it in this edition! Thanks for the support as always.

The rules for Blog-a-ton 49 are:

  • You can SUBMIT ONLY ONE POST irrespective of the number of blogs that you have.
  • You can give your post any title that you wish to.
  • You must justify this theme with your post. You can do it with any type of post (i.e. Poetry, Fiction, 55 fiction, dialogue, Essay... etc). You can also choose to make it serious, humorous, tragic, romantic... whatever setting you'd love to give.
  • You can write in any language as well, but since most Blog-a-tonics would prefer English as their language of communication, we'd suggest that too, so your post reaches a wider audience, and help you when it comes to Blog-a-ton 49 voting time.
  • The other rules (viz. header & footer to put in your post, the way to submit it on October 05, 2014 etc.) will be conveyed to you on October 4, 2014 02:00 PM IST. So kindly wait for that notification then rather than putting up queries right now. If the queries are regarding general pattern of the event, please go through the posts about previous events.

The winners of Blog-a-ton 49 will be featured on the Blog-a-ton Facebook Page cover photograph.

You have plenty of time to write your post but please publish the post only on October 05, 2014 and not before. The aim of Blog-a-ton is to have many people posting on the same theme on the same day, and that day is October 05, 2014 for Blog-a-ton 49!!

Encourage your fellow bloggers to participate in this edition. You can share this post on your various social networking profiles through the ShareThis widget present at the bottom of this post.


Looking forward to a good Blog-a-Ton again.
Poetically Yours,
Marshal,

Welcome to a new edition of Blog-a-Ton. We are doing great. We hope the same from you. I’m Sarav a.k.a Someone is Special - The Marshal of Blog-a-Ton. Well, time is ticking along, and we move to our 49th Blog-a-ton edition, which will be on October 5, 2014. Looking forward to seeing the old hands back to writing, and new ones joining in.



The way we usually go about on Blog-a-ton is that we have a call for topics (ONLY THREE WORDS) and then by voting, we decide on one of the topics as the topic for the month. After that, we give you a week’s time (we've two weeks this time) to write your post justifying the theme (TOPIC SELECTED) with a complementary post. Then, on the first Sunday of the succeeding month, you will publish the post on your blog, with our preset header and footer and come to Blog-a-ton and link your post in a comment. The week after the Blog-a-ton day will be for voting for your favorite blog-a-tonics from that edition.

It’s a one-day event each month, our dream is to get 100 participants in one edition, and our motto is to help writers to write better.



We will be having the secret ballot in this edition.

What you have to do is suggest the topics. Moderation is enabled, and I'll select the first eight topics that come. And we begin voting on that. If I find any topic to be inappropriate, or similar to that of a previous edition, that'll not come into the voting list.

Suggestion a topic now or Vote for a topic of your choice.


Topic
you are magical
a better world
down memory lane
I dream of
on level ground

  • You can vote for any one topic.
  • If you wish to change your vote later and support another topic, you can do so during the voting time-frame. But you are allowed only one change-of-vote. I’ll consider only the second vote in that instance.
  • The voting period is from September 3, 2014, Wednesday to September 21, 2014 Sunday 21:00 IST.
  • The topic that gets the majority votes will be announced on 21 September 2014, 22:00 IST Sunday as the Blog-a-ton 49 topic. In case two or more topics are tied at the end of voting, my vote as Marshal vote will decide. This time, we are giving you 15 days to write your post.
  • The Date for Blog-a-ton 49 is October 5, 2014 SUNDAY from 00:00 IST to 23:59 IST.

Looking forward to a wonderful Blog-a-ton once again…

Poetically Yours,
Marshal,
